Out of the horror of the Connecticut school shooting Friday came incredible acts of selflessness and bravery by teachers willing to sacrifice everything for their students.
Kaitlin Roig was able to save her 14 students by barricading them in the closet. She also survived. Victoria Soto was just as heroic, but not so fortunate.
Soto, 27, a first-grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School, ushered her students into a closet, placing her body between them and shooter Adam Lanza.
“She was found huddled over her children, her students, doing instinctively what she knew was theMore >

A day after reports surfaced that Modern Family star Ariel Winter has been legally removed from her home as authorities investigate claims of abuse against her mother, the 14-year old’s brother has spoken out.
“There is no truth to these allegations,” Jimmy Workman tells Us Weekly. “The allegations made 20 years ago are not true and the ones today are not true.”
In the latter instance, Jimmy is referring to the fact that Ariel’s sister – Shanelle Gray, with whom Winter currently resides – was also transplanted from her house two decades ago due to similar abuse claims.

At 8:46 this morning, practically all major networks turned their coverage to the moment of silence observed in New York City and Washington, D.C. on behalf of the thousands who died on September 11, 2001.
Except for NBC. It aired an interview with Kris Jenner instead.

“The Today Show dedicated a considerable amount of time to September 11th coverage this morning throughout the entire show,” a spokesperson for NBC News said in a statement to TV Line, defending the network’s decision.
And there is truth to that: Today did dedicate time to a special 9/11More >

Accusations of infidelity, inattentiveness and a great deal of name-calling have also been tossed around by both sides. Usher even cried once on the witness stand.
But the court has now sided with Usher and the former couple’s sons will spend a majority of time withMore >
